Besides being a great bookmarking utility, Linkatopia.com is a standards
based site. When a web site is designed carefully, according to web standards, the appearance of every
page can be changed with a single stylesheet.
This is powerful stuff. Pages load faster, mobile devices can be supported, and the
creative possibilities are endless. Imagine being able to redesign an entire site without
touching any of the HTML pages!
Take a look at this example, then switch back to normal.
Inspired by the famous CSS Zen Garden,
this ongoing event will give designers a chance to showcase their talents.
The competition is open to anyone with graphic design skills and an understanding
of CSS. Sign up as a member of Linkatopia and create a "theme" for your page.
If your design is selected, we will host it in our upcoming Themes Gallery.
You'll get full credit of course and your page will be displayed using your
design. Each member will have the option of selecting your design
as their "default" theme that loads each time they visit Linkatopia.
Regardless of whether you submit a design to us or not, you can still create a stylesheet and use it for your own page. You must host the stylesheet and all of its image files yourself. Test your stylesheet like this:
Your job will be to make a single stylesheet to replace the one currently used for
this site. Stylesheets we accept will become official designs and will be listed in
our "Themes Gallery" and in each member's profile preferences.
We encourage the following:
Entries will be reviewed as time permits. Obviously, as more designs are submitted it will take longer to review each one. We'll probably have a blog about designs at some point.
Please contact us if you have any questions or a design you want us to consider.
